Drafted: Pick 9 of the 7th round by Baltimore
Positives: Good open field runner with the quickness needed to stretch the defense...

Negatives: Does not play with toughness and aggression...More quick than fast, lacking an explosive burst out of his stance...Appears a little stiff in his hips attempting to break off his routes...Can find the soft spot in the zone, but does not have good separation speed...Has good hands, but tends to body catch...Inconsistent blocker who gets rocked back on his heels in pass protection (better blocker on the move or upfield)...More of a straight-line runner, lacking the hip swerve to elude...Shows decent hand placement as a blocker, but does not have the power to jolt and stalk.
